Update on project OCD 180 – 66’ custom aluminium expedition yacht for high latitude cruising

Wednesday, 01 June 2016

During the Spring we have had two design/build meetings with their client and a leading European yard to refine the specification and the contracting for the build of our new cruising yacht. We’re expecting to be able to announce the builder very soon once contracts have been signed as well as reveal more detail of the design.

Meanwhile, the detail design of the yacht has been moving forward at full steam, David de Villiers Design in New Zealand is approximately 50% of the way through the engineering process, the hull and deck lines have been issued and we’re certainly more than 75% of the way through the design process. Construction is due to start mid-Summer and delivery is targeted for February 2018, after which working up trials will take place and the first client cruises will take place in Norway.
